Hey guys, Mario Party 9 is out tomorrow! Wondered if anyone here is planning on picking this up? I've heard good reviews and that it offers a fresh change for the series but after seeing this video it's definately convinced me to order it. Looks like a good laugh with your mates.|
What you lot think?

I think that Mario Party is basically one hell of a party.
I for one will be partaking in a Mario Party this weekend, and trading in the disappointing Mario party 8 while im at it

Going to pick my copy up from GAME on the way home.
Hmmm not sure I like the all being lumbered in one vehicle approach tho...
@Syrette Think GAME aren't stocking the game at all
Weekend is planned now. Crate of beer and three friends. Looking forward to it

Yeah I will probably pick it up since its made by the people who did Wii Party and that was a really fun game to have a drink and a laugh with.

Hmm, i'm very tempted by this as I used to love playing MP4 but after MP8 i'm very cautious about buying it. Anyone played it yet?
two copies due in at HMV none received yet.... bah!

Good review here from a well respect Nintendo fansite. Their Playstation sister site, pushsquare.com, is another favourite of mine.
Will probably pick this up cheap in a few months. Haven't played/endured an MP game since the Gamecube.
Tracked a copy down (the only one received in eastbourne town centre - the future sans Game!) had one game so far with missus, slightly miss the devious alternative route planning of travelling separate paths but still some opportunities for screwing over rivals despite being lumbered in one vehicle. Game was much shorter (40 mins max) so no epic 50 turn battles as per previous mario party games. On flipside flowed much quicker and was eventful on most turns
Much more polished than mario party 8 and enjoyed all the minigames and the boss battles were ok. So far so good, now need to try four player with beer over an evening for a proper test!
The guys who did the video I originally posted also have a review up too. The writer seemed to really enjoy the game

Did someone play it? It looks pretty fun.
